Benicar (olmesartan medoxomil) is part of a family of blood pressure drugs sold by Daiichi Sankyo. The drugs, including Benicar HTC, Azor and Tribenzor, all carry a risk of Benicar sprue-like enteropathy. Sprue-like enteropathy is a condition that causes symptoms similar to those of celiac disease and may take months or years to develop and may require hospitalization.

The Ruth Law Team is currently investigating serious side effects of taking Benicar, Tribenzor, Azor and Benicar HTC. Some of these serious Benicar side effects include chronic diarrhea, dehydration and weight loss.

The link between Benicar and enteropathy was first uncovered in 2012, when researchers at the Mayo Clinic found that over a three-year period, 22 patients taking Benicar displayed symptoms suggestive of celiac disease, however, blood tests for the patients did not support the diagnosis. When patients stopped taking the drug, their GI symptoms improved. Further studies have linked the active ingredient in Benicar to an additional 40 cases of sprue-like enteropathy.

See What Our Clients Are Saying

The Ruth Law team is an ethical, professional and very experienced law office full of people that care about their clients. They tell the unvarnished truth about what the law says and how it may be applied. There are so many law firms that advertise big payouts without being honest or work directly with insurance companies using formulas of the insurance company’s making. Research attorneys and their firms before being fooled by flashy advertisements. It was a relief to know we were represented by truthful staff who actually cared about long-term outcomes.

Amy was both a great lawyer and a friend during a very difficult time for me and my family. She was with us every step of the way and made sure we always knew what was going on. Amy and her team, especially Patti, took very good care of us and treated us with empathy and respect. Highly recommend.

After being struck by a car, I was in dire need of a law firm that understood the complexities of my injuries as well as being able to help me navigate all the insurance bureaucracies I was forced to deal with. Their experience and understanding were paramount in helping me settle my claim so that I could move forward knowing I was in good hands. Don't be fooled by bravado and slick advertising that many attorneys use. Get The Ruth Law Team because they are truly knowledgeable, professional, and honest.

Benicar Side Effects

Benicar Side Effects

Product Liability lawyers across the country are working to create a consolidated federal multidistrict litigation (MDL) due to the growing number of Benicar lawsuits.  The MDL would centralize all the Benicar lawsuits before one judge for the purpose of coordinated pretrial proceedings and to ease discovery issues.  The makers of Benicar strongly oppose this MDL and are fighting to block its creation.
